attention friends and fellow bloggers, if you don’t know what TV show you want to watch now, I am here to tell you that it is Leverage. Even if you think you know what you want to watch next, you probably really want to watch Leverage. 

  • it’s a modern day Robin Hood type thing
  • basically all the bad guys that they steal from are corrupt 1%ers
  • they usually con them into destroying themselves
  • it’s really satisfying
  • they even stop things that aren’t just illegal but also just really dick moves
  • all of the characters are fully fledged people
  • teamwork and camaraderie
  • Everyone is super good at their jobs
  • and they support each other
  • you get to watch them become a family!
  • almost no sexism, like if it’s there it’s either expressed by the bad guys, or to manipulate the bad guys
  • plus, it deals with the heavy, real world sort of stuff that could really get you depressed and angry, but it’s got so much great, really funny humor, and light-hearted moments that it balances out
  • Mark Sheppard plays a sort of lawful neutral guy who often works against them, because he he supports the institutions
  • They do not, because they know they don’t work
  • order vs. justice
  • but the show condemns inefficiency of the systems without making the people who work in them one dimensional
  • All five seasons are on Netflix and Hulu Plus
  • if you like paying for stuff/have someone else’s password, for everyone else, you know what to do
  • in conclusion: WATCH LEVERAGE
